Sella Rock Climbing

Sella Rock Climbing
Sella is one of the most popular rock climbing venues in Costa Banca, in part due to its angle and number of 5th and 6th-grade climbs of outstanding quality. It is however slightly a victim of its own success, with the easy routes becoming quiet polished.

Situated near the town of Sella, the long and winding road that leads to this crag is a little pot-holed and requires a gentle approach. Although the saying goes the best 4×4 by far is a hire car right?! The main crag offers a whole host of routes from grade 4 to 7. With the majority being in the 6th gade. 

The main wall faces south and means it gets the sun all day. There is often a breeze running down the valley which you get on the routes to cool you down whilst you climb. Whilst it is sheltered at the base amongst the trees that can provide shade if necessary.

Amongst some of these routes are some real classic and must do routes. In general, though the majority of rock climbing at Sella is worth doing. As there are very few dud routes and anything with a star in the guide is worthy of your attention. It is why we use Sella on nearly every Costa Blanca Hot Rock Climbing Holiday.

The downfall of the Rock Climbing in Sella comes from the popularity of the area. As sometimes you can find queues on the very best routes and all that traffic is starting to polish the both the best routes and the easiest. 

There are however other areas like the Pared De Rosalia which is North face with some harder multi-pitched routes on it in high 6th and 7th Grade. Or further on from the main crag the classic Hidden Valley Wild Side crag with virtually no routes below 7a.

Martxa D’aci – 6a – Is the 6a route to aim to climb.

Sopa De Marsopa – 6b+ – Is long and sustain with a couple of hard to read cruxes.
